Necklaces from Haiti: The Victoria

We’re breaking out the sweaters from the corners of our closets, and what better to pair with a cardigan than a simple and chic necklace?

Fair Trade Brings Hope to Artisans in Haiti 

2nd Story Goods, a division of Much Ministries and partner of Jesus' Economy, co-labors with Haitian men and women on the outskirts of Gonaives, Haiti, to make beautiful things. These products create sustainable incomes for Haitian families. It is 2nd Story Goods' vision to help people move from poverty to abundance through education, creativity, and practical life experiences. Haiti has a 40 percent unemployment rate (World Bank, 2010), so the work of 2nd Story Goods is desperately needed.

Jesus’ Economy is dedicated to alleviating global poverty, and partnerships with organizations like 2nd Story Goods are the perfect way to empower artisans as they work toward more hopeful futures.

Join us in this mission and shop fair trade today.
